An idea I had about this some time ago was that read()
could be callable with two arguments:

   f.read(min_bytes, max_bytes)

The two variations we're considering would then be special
cases of this:

   f.read(0, num_bytes)         # current read() behaviour

   f.read(num_bytes, num_bytes) # record-oriented read() behaviour
